We are working with our charity of the year, Homeless Hounds to share a dog of the month who is looking for their forever home.
July’s Dog of the Month is Dolly.
Dolly is a crossbreed. She is approximately 4 years old and is a female.
Dolly has a lovely nature and is quite a laid back girl.
Dolly adores snuggling but she also has a giddy, playful side. Dolly already knows basic command put it on herself!
Dolly is fully house trained and can be left home alone for a few hours without getting upset. She doesn’t chew things that don’t belong to her but she does chew her toys. She enjoys playing with her toys, either by herself or with her humans.
Dolly loves her food and wait, then when the food goes down, she’s straight in there.
Dolly is a fairly lazy girl and will push off from the sofa like you push off from the wall at swimming.
Dolly licks you non-stop and often needs coaxing to go outside then.
Dolly wears a harness on walks – she pulls, to begin with, but she’s easily controlled. She hasn’t been off lead yet, so we don’t know how her recall will be but we do know that she tries to chase the birds! She likes to pull towards people for attention and muddy puddles! Dolly currently goes for walks two or three times a day.
Dolly has skin allergies which are easily controlled with a Royal Canin diet which is available online.
Dolly has mainly spent time around adults and she was happy to be stroked.
Dolly will need a really secure garden with very high fences, she likes to try and can be quite inventive with her Houdini impersonations.
To adopt Dolly, please complete the online adoption application form at www.homelesshounds.org.uk and the Homeless Hounds team will be in touch. They welcome applications from the North West but unfortunately are unable to consider applications from further afield.
Please submit your application before requesting to meet the dogs and visits are by appointment only. Please note that Homeless Hounds is unable to rehome dogs to families with children under 5 years.
